Notes

Revision by Dan McDonald, Sept-Oct, 2012.
Diamond Cut Forensics 8 was used to rearrange the audio. I used the spectral filter for equalization in several different ways.
The main goal was to lower the prominence of the bass. Most of the bass was in the right channel, so that was just a reworking of the sonic profile for the left channel. Sometimes, the bass was in both channels. In those instances I either left it alone or lowered it (depending on what was going on at the time). Along the way I boosted the highs considerably in both channels. You should be able to hear quite a bit of difference.

Booting highs lead to some increases in noise. I used a continuous noise artifact reduction filter as a last step to enhance listening pleasure for those who are bothered by nasty noise. If it doesn't bother you, there is a version without the noise reduction. My take is that no noise reduction is more vibrant sounding, but this version is definitely cleaner in sound.
You should be able to hear the drums, guitars and vocals more prominently than earlier versions. I don't specify all the things I did because there were too many changes.

I left the space (tape cut or tape flip in the original) as it was in the source I used. There's enough hiss that either the lineage is wrong or the signal was recorded at very low levels in the original.
One fun note: Appears to be a "Rocky Top" tease from Phil at 8:13 into The Other One.

A real pity more of this show doesn't exist, and a pity also that what exists is so fraught with later modifications in terms of trying to EQ the thing to be listenable. This treatment makes the quality of the show more obvious, but the whole thing sounds as if it is being put through an Ibanez Tube Screamer: very mid-boosted and thin sounding.

Source: This is a restored version of shnid=14687. It did not involve an upgrade in the source material. A short portion contains a transfer from an open reel tape I received in trade in 1977 (unknown generations).
